I will see you all in August! Tomorrow I'm off for a Hawaiian cruise with the family. There will be little to no internet connection on the boat, so I'm just going to take a two-week Spark haitus and come back stronger in August.

My approach to packing for this trip is apparently to take everything I own that is even vaguely summery and pile it all on the guest bed, then stare at it despairingly.

At least it's an evening flight.

What a terrible time you had Miss G. I think you (as I would too) really freaked out when you had to save yourself by touching the moving vehicle. Maybe all the other awful symptoms you experienced were related to that awful scare. Stay well, and be careful on that bike!!

I biked 35 miles yesterday, but they were not good miles. I had intended to make a 55-mile loop, but just 5 miles in I hit a piece of rebar that caused my front tire to scoot out from under me, throwing me toward traffic that was starting to move. I stopped myself from falling into the street by *putting my hand on a moving car.*

Needless to say, I was sort of jangled with adrenaline by all that.

I biked 5 more miles, trying to get myself calmed down, but I was struggling. So when I got to a charming little village I pulled over, sat down on a bench, ate a banana, drank some water, and got myself calmer. I went on from there, headed south and slightly upstream into a mild headwind. I wasn't expecting to be fast, but I was surprised at how bad I felt. I had to stop and rest again after another 5 miles, and then at 18 miles, when I reached the top of a hill I simply had to throw myself down on the grass, gasping for air.

That's when I cut the ride short. I started back, and it was definitely easier, but every climb was doing me in WAY more than it should have. Stopped after 5 miles to buy a coke, and then after another 3 to buy some Gatorade. I texted hubby to let him know I might need a rescue, but decided to keep going. Stopped one last time about 4 miles from home to take shelter under a gas station for 10 minutes of absolute deluge, then made the final press for home.

About two blocks from home, I started wondering if I was having a heart attack. The road was flat, but I still felt terrible. I felt like I couldn't catch my breath at all. I briefly considered calling for a rescue but realized I could be home before he could get in the car and come get me.

Got home, told hubby my concerns, decided to take a shower to get the sweat off, and then noticed that I was fighting cramps in my thighs, feet, and calves. Sure sign of potassium deficiency. Decided that an immediate trip to ER was not necessary.

I'm still going to call my doctor on Monday and go in to get checked out. I don't feel 100% back to normal yet, but no real chest or back pain,

(And now that I've written all this up, I will make it a blog entry!)

Starting the month with a stress-fractured foot, so there will be very little walking. I'm allowed to bike and swim, though, so I will Swim to Rivendell! LOL!

emoticon It's not quite the last day of the month of June, but since I've a busy weekend I thought I'd go ahead and start the July Topic.

emoticon First off, thanks to new members AMANDARAQS AND BARDIC_GRRL we are up to 40 members! Of course, only a handful (literally) check in regularly and participate in the team goals.

emoticon Extra kudos to BARDIC_GRRL, who finished the Gold Nugget Triathlon on 5/19/2013.

emoticon Both MOTLEM and BARDIC_GRRL have really inspirational blogs. Check them out and let's get the 40 members of this team to give them great big thumbs up so they can win recognition for a Popular Blog Post!

emoticon Thanks to RICK1947, MOTLEM and JJARAMILO for participating in team goal #1. Thanks to RICK1947 and JJARAMILO for participating in team goal #2.

emoticon On a personal note, I would like to step down as team leader in September. That will mark a year that I have been leading the team. If you would like to step up, please send me a message.
emoticon

emoticon For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, here is a great SparkPeople article about summer time activities. For our Tasmanian Trekker, MOTLEM, and those looking for exotic ideas for walking, I found this on Lonely Planet. (Links below)
